Minutes:

The Panel was asked to consider the planning applications which were set out in Document “G” relating to items recommended for approval or refusal.

 

The sites concerned were:

 

 

1 Necropolis Road, Bradford                                          Great Horton

 

Full application proposing a conversion of a single residential dwelling into three self-contained apartments at 1 Necropolis Road, Bradford – 21/00546/FUL.

 

The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He provided an appraisal of the application and informed Members that Number 1 Necropolis Road was a two storey mid-terraced property, located close to a junction on Cemetery Road.  It was constructed in stone with a slate tile roof and has attractive bay feature windows at ground floor level, with significant size dormer windows in the roof.  The main road and entrance were to the front, however access could also be taken from a road at the rear.

 

In response to Members questions it was reported that off-street parking for three vehicles was to be provided to the rear of this property taking access from an existing track.  As the access was already established, this proposal was not considered to raise any increased issues for highway safety and provided a minimum of one vehicle space per apartment which was acceptable.  The existing property was also served by on-street parking on Necropolis Road and this parking would also be available.  The proposal accorded with policies DS4 and TR2 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document. 

 

The Planning Officer reported that the proposal was not considered to raise any significant concerns for the built environment, future occupants, neighbouring occupants, heritage assets or highway safety.  The proposal followed guidance given in the Council's Homes and Neighbourhoods Supplementary Planning Document and accorded with policies DS1, DS3, DS4, DS5, EN3 and TR2 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document.

 

Resolved –

 

That the application be approved for the reasons and subject to the conditions set out in the Strategic Director, Place’s technical report (Document “G”)

 

Action: Strategic Director, Place

 

 

 

 

 

 

2.         22 Oakridge Avenue, Menston, Ilkley                           Wharfedale

 

Householder planning application for a two-storey side and rear extension and part single storey rear extension.  The proposals also included a hip-to-gable roof enlargement and rear dormer window at 22 Oakridge Avenue, Menston – 21/00425/HOU.

 

The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He provided an appraisal of the application and informed Members that the property was a semi-detached circa 1960's red brick dwelling under a concrete tile roof.  It was located on the east side of Menston in a residential cul-de-sac (Oakridge Avenue) that was lined by similar properties.  A large garden to the rear dropped in level as it extended east towards the Wharfedale railway line which ran in a cutting.

 

It was reported that the proposal, in its amended form, was a sufficiently subordinate addition to the property and would not appear as a discordant feature in the street scene.  The reduced size of  ...  view the full minutes text for item 21.
